Washington, March 6.-The rules
Comniittee, one of the most powerful
oC the house committees of the sixty
second congress, with Representative
Robert L. Henry, of Waco, Texas, at
its head, was formally created by the
new house ways and means commit

The committee will consist of 11
members. The four Republican mem

publican personnel of the committees
of the nei house. The ways and
means committee, which is charged
under caucus dictum with the func

not empowered to name the chairman,
but it recommended to the new rules
committee that it elect Mr. Henry as
chairman, which is tantamount to
designation at this time.
The fiembers of the rules commit

seniority of service. Messrs. Hard

There was some discussion by the

revision, but the committee is delib

Difference as to Methods.
The Democratic', members of the
committee realize that there is consid
erable difference of opinion aimong the
kouse membership in their party as
to the methods of 'revising the tariff,

others schedule by schedule, in ac
.Nord with the views of leaders like
Messrs. Clark and Underwood. There
is no conclusion yet as to whether the
schedules are to be tacked on to the
Canadian reciprocity bill so that vote
in the senate against the schedule re

reciprocity agreement, though the bill
